endless opportunities for our young talents

Today we would like to put Andrew, one of our young talents in the spotlight.

Andrew joined us after finishing his degree in Mechatronic & Robotics at the University of Leeds and has been working as a Process Engineer within IPS UK for a little over 2 years, including 18 months in the Aalberts trainee programme.

“I chose the Aalberts trainee programme as I was well aware of the Pegler brand, its history and its importance to the local area. As I started to do more research into Aalberts and the trainee programme I saw a great opportunity for me to be able to live & work in different countries and at different sites. I believed these prospects would provide me with a great starting point in my career whilst offering unique experiences & opportunities.”

Andrew tells us a little about his diverse responsibilities at the company; My day to day at IPS involves maintaining and improving manufacturing & assembly processes in the Heating and Gas valves departments. This involves spending a fair amount of time on the shop floor with the operators to find out what their thoughts on the processes are and how they believe they could be improved. In the past 6 months or so I have also been involved in the Seppelfricke transfer project specifically, the implementation and improvements on the gas valve assembly area.”  

Working at Aalberts always provides Andrew with new and interesting challenges where every day is different. “It causes you to have to constantly think on your feet forcing to solve new and different problems. Getting the opportunity to solve problems is what provides me with the most satisfaction. If I had to describe Aalberts in just 1 word, it would definitely be ‘Thought-provoking’.

Even though Andrew has already finished his Traineeship, he is definitely not done learning. “In the future months I would like to complete some training courses specifically the Sigma Six Green Belt and a PLC programming course to further my development as an engineer.”

Of course Andrew also makes sure he puts time aside to unwind. “In my free time I like to spend most of my time either playing or watching various sports but mainly football. I also enjoy socialising with friends at the pub.”
